Zareena Bibi's Story
Zareena Bibi is a delicate and innocent girl with a heart full of hopes and dreams. Her life took a tragic turn when she was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect. This little girl’s only chance of living a healthy life depends on open-heart surgery. Because of the high cost of the surgery, her father has given up hope that he will be able to save her daughter’s life. We urge you to donate and bring her closer to a future filled with joy, laughter, and good health.
Six-year-old Zareena Bibi, a resident of Bhakkar, has suffered from shortness of breath and cyanosis since birth. She is also unable to gain weight. Her parents learned about her condition at the age of one. They took her to a local hospital. After the diagnostic tests and evaluation, the doctor diagnosed her with a congenital heart condition involving Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). The cardiac surgeon advised her for angiography followed by Open-Heart Surgery for total correction.
Zareena Bibi lives in a small house with her parents and four siblings. His father has a meager income of PKR 14,000 per month. He works hard every day to provide for his family, but Zareena’s surgery is too expensive for him to bear alone. Her father said in despair:

Zareena Bibi's Story
A six-year-old Zareena Bibi, a brave little girl from Bhakkar, had been struggling with shortness of breath and cyanosis since the day she was born. Her parents, concerned about her health, sought medical help when she turned one. It was then that they received the heartbreaking news that Zareena had a congenital heart condition known as Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF).
Determined to find a solution for their precious daughter, Zareena's parents took her to a local hospital, where doctors confirmed the diagnosis. They were advised that an angiography followed by open-heart surgery for total correction was the best course of action. However, the cost of the surgery was beyond their means, and they felt helpless and unsure of how to proceed.
In their moment of despair, they reached out to Transparent Hands, an organization dedicated to providing medical assistance to those in need. Placing their hopes in the organization, Zareena's family registered her case, hoping for a miracle.
The heartfelt plea did not go unheard. Transparent Hands, along with the generous support of donors, rallied together to make Zareena's dream of a healthy life a reality.
